The construction and engineering industry plays a significant role in the economy, accounting for approximately 8% of GDP and creating jobs, supply chains, and long-term benefits.
However, recent economic trends have led to increased costs for construction and engineering projects, including inflation, currency fluctuations, and the supply of materials and labour. This seminar will address these challenges and share strategies for setting up projects in a recession-proof manner.
Lauren Hartigan-Pritchard, Legal Director and Head of Restructuring and Insolvency at Higgs LLP will provide a brief overview of the current and anticipated longer term state of the market and insolvency trends.
Richard Whittaker, Director of Development at Citizen Housing will share a strategy developed in-house at Citizen Housing for identifying potential insolvencies in the supply chain.
And finally, Rachael Hobbis, Partner and Head of Construction and Engineering at Higgs LLP will discuss opportunities to recession-proof construction contracts.
